22 oz. into a snifter

P: Cloudy gold with 3 fingers of white, soapy yet firmly-packed foam for a crown. Showed outstanding retention, then deflated to a thick collar of crust and left some sticky sheets of lacing as it did.

A: Big, scrumptious waves of citrusy, tropical fruits bombard my nose, while pine is easily appreciated in its secondary role. Pale malt sweetness is buried underneath, and takes some time and effort to uncover it. Impressive power and strength, yet enough finesse to please even my wife, who hates hoppy beers!

T: That great tropical fruit aroma transfers itself nicely to the palate with deep, citrusy notes of grapefruit, oranges, pineapples, and melons, with a little weed funk thrown in for good measure! The resinous pine never shies away from grabbing your attention, either, as it tingles the tongue with a little spicy kick on the back end. The big hop bill is supported nicely by a sugar cookie-like malt sweetness and creamy caramel that only hints at balance by managing to stay out of the way for the most part. It tastes like the toasted malt has some wheat that helps the hops dry things out considerably on the finish. I really love this!

M: Medium-full bodied with a smooth and creamy, sticky and dry feel that suits the deep, enticing flavor quite nicely.

Notes: Well, I really liked the Lil' Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale, but I flat-out love this Lil' Sumpin Extra! The hop profile is right up my alley, as I love my DIPA's to boast that tropical fruit vibe that just really hits my sweet spot. Highly recommended!
